MHPSS TECHNICAL ADVISOR – SOUTH SUDAN

MHPSS TECHNICAL ADVISOR – SOUTH SUDAN HI has been operating in South Sudan since 2006, implementing emergency and development actions aimed at improving protection, quality of life, and the promotion of rights of vulnerable individuals, including people with physical disabilities. HI’s current operations are centred in POCs (protection of civilian sites) and IDP camps outside Juba city and in three greater states: Yei, Torit and Yambio with the Country Office based in Juba city. During 2019, HI is planning to establish a base in the greater Unity, which remains the most conflict and disability affected region of the whole country. The operational context in South Sudan today is considered largely humanitarian/emergency while phasing in resilience programming. The ongoing peace initiatives if they succeed might result in huge population movements of returnees (both IDPs and refugees) across the country. HI’s present interventions address both emergency and resilience needs. Since 2016, HI has been operating an emergency mobile (or flying) unit responding to MHPSS (Mental Health & Psychosocial Support) and disability rehabilitation assistance in the greater Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei states. Overall, about 50,000 direct beneficiaries (people with disability and other most vulnerable) are being targeted through MHPSS and Livelihood projects, with a strong emphasis on mainstreaming disability inclusion.
